12th ePortfolio, Open Badges and Identity Conference, University of Greenwich, Greenwich, UK
online learning; achievement; assessment
ePortfolios and Open Badges are only the first wave in what will emerge as a wider network-based form of assessment that makes tests and reviews unnecessary. In this talk I discuss work being done in network-based automated competency development and recognition, the challenges it presents to traditional institutions, and the opportunities created for genuinely autonomous open learning.
